deserted the lighter roles of
filmdom f-T her new picture. She
'has a highly dramatic role In
"The Wreck." the new picture at
the Liberty theatre. It la that
of a girl whs Is fo:led Into a
false wedding ceremony, finds
she is married to a crook, and
tried to rnn away only to find
. her&elf the heroine of a train
j wreck and the supposed wife of
a wealthy man. How the com
;plica:i:ns are romantically nn-
tangled forms the plot cf this
melodrama, wbirh was written
by Dorothy Howell.
. Co-featured with her Is Mal
colm McGregor, who finds him
self a widower when his wife Is
killed in a train wceck. and yet
finds a lovely girl in his home
whom his mother believes Is her
new daughter-in-law. It Is an
engaging role for this popular
leading man.
